A 25-year-old man has allegedly set the apartment of a colleague ablaze after an argument at Akplabanya in the Ada West District of the Greater Accra Region.
Identified as Eric Kitcher, alleged to be a drug addict, went to the house of one Ezekiel Kitcher with broken bottles and threatened to kill all occupants of the house.
A report by GNA indicated that Mr Kitcher called all his family members into a room and locked them up due to the hostile attitude put up by the suspect and later called Philimon Kitcher to come their rescue.
Mr Philimon Kitcher, whose room was set ablaze, explained that a misunderstanding ensued between Eric and another brother after a football match.
Fredrick Tetteh Labia, Assembly Member for Akplabanya Electoral Area, told the media that he organised the youth to chase the suspect to arrest him.
DSP George Aboagye, the District Police Commander confirmed the incident and said investigations have been launched into the matter.
